LIZABETH, NJ — The Kislak Company, Inc. announced the recent Senior VP Jeff Squires arranges exclusive sale of 10-story mixed-use downton property Kislak sells historic Winfield Scott Tower in Elizabeth, New Jersey for $6.2 Million E

lender, Winfield Scott Tower Urban Renewal Assoc., to market and sell the property on an exclusive basis with senior vice president Jeff Squires handling the assign- ment. He also procured the purchaser, The Magill Tower Urban Renewal, LLC. Winfield Scott Tower was originally built in 1927 as a premier banquet hall and hotel tower and was later con- verted to subsidized housing and retail space in the 1990s. The ten-story tower houses 48 apartments with three elevator banks and a bustling

26,000 s/f night club situated on one acre in the downtown city center. The property in- cludes over 70 parking spaces and is located one block from the downtown train station. “The sale of Winfield Scott Tower was a complex trans- action because the sale in- volved the assumption of a PILOT agreement and in- place DCA financing,” said Squires. “Kislak collaborated with the purchaser in order to obtain all special approvals at the municipal and state levels. Magill Real Estate is locally renowned for excellent

property management and the firm is looking forward to establishing itself in one of the most iconic properties in Elizabeth.” This is the second subsi- dized housing tower in Eliza- beth that Squires has sold this year. In March, he and executive vice president Joni Sweetwood completed the sale of Elizabeth Towers, a 193-unit age-restricted prop- erty on West Grand St. for $14.3 million. Winfield Scott Tower is located on North Broad St., which consists of retail spaces, apartments and municipal buildings, 0.7 miles from City Hall, the Union County Court- house and the Elizabeth Police Station, and 0.2 miles from the Elizabeth Train Station. Squires joined Kislak in 2007 and specializes in the sale of multifamily and oth- er investment properties throughout northern New Jersey. Consistently among Kislak’s leading salespeople, he received the firm’s 2008 Rookie of the Year award, 2012 Sima Kislak Jelin Sales- person of the Year award and 2014 and 2016 Producer of the Year award.
